Babies & Kids
When you have little ones running around, there’s always something to think about—gentle shampoo, eco-friendly toys, chemical-free wipes, and on and on. That’s why we’re here to demystify the sometimes complicated world of shopping for baby. When you’re looking for healthy, nontoxic options to stash in your diaper bag, changing table, and car, check this list and get the scoop on products our members (and their families) adore.
Benefits of Eco-Friendly Baby Toys
From stoking your kiddo’s imagination to helping to keep non-recyclable waste out of landfills, there are plenty of reasons why eco-friendly baby toys should be your go-to.
- Energy savings: Nix the batteries and reduce energy costs in the process.
- Prevent waste buildup: Toys inevitably break, and when you toss them out, plastic ones end up piling up in landfills. Toys made from wood or bamboo are more sustainable—and recyclable!
- Durability:When you’re shopping on a budget, toys that don’t require batteries can last longer and be reused with younger children.
- Encourage creativity: Wooden blocks, books, and magnet tiles can be used in a variety of ways to encourage imagination and creativity in the playroom.
